Product Description

Sneaking Suspicion Composed by Doug Spata. For String Orchestra. Published by Highland/Etling. (Catalog # 33722, UPC: 038081377308)

There are a few composers whose name instantly elicits comments such as "He/she is so creative and imaginative!" or "My students love anything he/she writes!" Doug Spata is one of those composers. Here he takes only notes on the A and D string (G and D on bass) uses nothing more complicated than eighth notes, goes back to pizzicato that students first learned when they picked up their instrument - and he makes magic! Without the bow to worry about, you can concentrate on teaching your students the rhythmic rest patterns, the effective dynamics and listening to the call-and-response of their fellow players. The piece is so much fun, with its "cartoon tiptoe" style that your students won't realize they're learning something!
